Balenciaga Autumn-Winter 2017

Posted in Couture

When Demna Gvasalia first took over Balenciaga I thought his designs were weird and wacky, but now they’re growing on me and I find quite a few items to be weird and wonderful. Just like Gucci it’s all about the details more so than the whole looks, although there are a few fun ones of those too — and some that should perhaps never have left the design studio.

  1. A new striped nylon bag, in the huge size Gvasalia debuted in his first collection for Balenciaga, but also available in smaller sizes with a chain strap (see #3).
  2. Pretty porcelain {could they be cups?} cuffs and sideview mirror shaped clutches.
  3. Vintage florals with futuristic looking lycra sock boots.
  4. A puffy polka dot dress (inspired by Cristóbal Balenciaga’s original designs) with a matching oversized Bazar Tote bag.
  5. Tone on tone colours, and more sock boots. I really adore this dress (see top left image) and colour combination.
  6. More oversized puffy nylon sporty duffel bags.
  7. Weird yet pretty heels covered in cotton jersey.

The entire collection is very feminine but still also very simple and contemporary. I don’t know if I’m putting anything Balenciaga on my wishlist for autumn, but I’ll be keeping an eye out when the things are released.
